The first half of this route is technical slabbing.
The second half is a lot of fun.
Wise for the belayer to wear a helmet.
Found supplemental gear not needed. Slung the shrub at the end of the slab, otherwise, all bolts. Apr 3, 2016

Could use more traffic, chossy at top. Oct 5, 2015

Excellent route that is super fun, though the slab section is a bit runout. If you're going to the Coffin this route is a must do on the way there. Mar 25, 2012

The 1st half was fun but turning the lip and entering the choss realm on the last bit was disappointing. I didn't place any gear or feel the need to on this one. Good warmup for the 11. Nov 7, 2009
I liked this route. This and mezzanine make for a nice quick outing. thanks for your work and effort. Cheers. Steve Oct 19, 2009

Fun slab route, also my favorite song by Massive attack. Are the FA's fans by chance? I used a purple tcu between the 2 and 3 bolt and a sling to wrap a solid bush towards the top. I remember walking by while cleaning the route, was on my way to work on the cracked egg Oct 4, 2009
